Bert Jansch

On the final Friday of MIF07, legendary guitarist and songwriter Bert Jansch came to The Bridgewater Hall for an evening of classic songs and stellar musicianship. Fresh as a Sweet Sunday Morning, It Don’t Bother Me and October Song all got an outing at this one-off gig, with Jansch joined on stage by two latterday acolytes: singer-songwriter Beth Orton and guitarist Bernard Butler.
